A Study of Damaged Ship Survivability with CFD Method in Wave
Yue Gu, in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering at the University of Strathclyde is using ARCHIE-WeST to develop CFD simulations on damaged ship stability and survivability. The project is supervised by Prof. Sandy Day (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Evangelos Boulougouris (email@example.com). During the past decades, accidents such as collision and grounding have led to flooding of damaged ships, which can threaten the survival of the ship and its passengers and crew. Current approaches to modelling these phenomena are typically based on hybrid models based on synthesis of existing engineering tools. This study is aimed at modelling the complex dynamics of the ship and floodwater in waves from first principles using CFD techniques to gain a more fundamental understanding of ship stability and damaged survivability to lay the basis of a solid foundation of ship design and navigation safety.
